Subject Re: will upsert have bad effect on scan performace?

Hi Andy,

An upsert of a row that does not exist is exactly the same as an insert.

You can think of upsert as:

try {
  insert the row
} catch (Already Exists) {
  update the row

In reality, the conversion from insert to update is a bit more efficient
compared to doing the above yourself (and it's atomic). But, in terms of
performance, once the row has been inserted, it is the same as any other
